I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Very nice building. Staff seemed satisfied and content.

Cons

This company goes by Karr Barth Associates and AXA Advisors. They called in about 5 of us for a group interview and gave us more information about the company. Then they said they would be selecting two or three of us to come back. All the other candidates, including myself, had their master's degrees and so did everyone else I spoke with at the company. This gave me a few shreds of hope. I was called in for a second interview to speak with the president and was eventually told that I would have to pay $650-800 to get licensed and that I would have to draw from my "natural market". For those of you who don't know, that is people that you know like your parents, family, and friends. After that, I was told that I could go for 4-5 weeks without receiving a paycheck "due to the peaks and valleys associated with this type of career". Also, they asked that I work until 8pm and come in on weekends because, "It's not a job, it's a career business". Additionally, the president who interviewed me was writing on my resume the entire time I was speaking to him and not making eye contact with me or showing any other social vital signs. I did confirm my third interview (which I will not show up for) to show them that they are not the only ones who can waste other peoples' time.Thanks for the false hope and wasting my gas money. Stay away from this place.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    + No grid pay structure, same if you are a 50K producer or a 500K producer
    + Allows you to sell what's right for the client not what you can only sell them
    + Opportunities to move up in management
    + Great Benefits for long term investments
    + Marketing and Planning resources provided by branch and company
    + LPL and AXA working together, giving you independence with your investments and the big name of AXA behind you
    + Support in the Edison office from BMs, DMs, and Experienced Advisors

    Cons

    + just like every other company, difficult to build a business, but just remember to prospect in many ways
    + Exams take time
